Food Justice Certification requires that workers not be exposed to the chemicals used in conventional agriculture through organic management practice, being Certified Naturally Grown or using biodynamic management practices.
However, that is not the only thing needed to have a fair farm or a fair food system. Empowerment and distribution of power is critical. The standards are what they are because those working in the food system decided what they should be.
“As thought leaders who are becoming more of a recognizable name, part of doing this certification was to say, ‘we believe in the values this represents,’ and to uplift the process,” says Soul Fire’s co-director, Larisa Jacobson. (from Civil Eats article)
